April 1- Opie and Anthony'sApril Fools Day PrankonMayor Meninoof Boston. For their annual April Fools prank, Opie called a severely hung over Anthony bright and early with the idea "Let's tell all of Boston that Mayor Menino died in a fiery car crash!". Anthony agreed. The fallout from this prank was far greater than anyone had anticipated. It gained citywide attention and news coverage, and was made worse by the fact that Mayor Menino could not be reached at the time because he was in the air on his way back from Florida.
April 2- Opie and Anthony's last live show on WAAF. They were suspended without pay that day. Despite ridiculous attempts by Dave Dickless to patch things up with such suggestions as a public pieing, and donating pies to terminally ill children, the damage had been done.
April 9- Opie and Anthony are fired.
June- The bbboys are signed to legendary New York rock station 102.7WNEW. Over the next year, they were locked in battle with the other DJs, due to their interjection of humor between songs. "Shut up and play the music" was heard all too often.
June 26- Opie and Anthony's first show on WNEW.
October- Ratings come out, and WNEW is dead last in ratings among all radio stations in the New York City area. Most of the damage was done before they got there. Thus begins O&A's long journey to become the #1 show in their time-slot.
